Avant has released a new version of its browser, which now includes a web page zoom feature. I've seen screen magnification programs to help the visually impaired, but Avant now has this feature built in, and even outperforms some of the magnifiers I've tested. The attached composite shows the difference that zooming to 150% can make when viewing a web page, and Avant supports zooming up to 500% (or down to 25%).

Over the last few days, I have suddenly started to get the latest posts from this section, in the "What's New" click. The majority are not Windows 8 related.
Is this something I have accidentally altered in the browser, or a new feature. Whichever, is there any way it can be hidden>?

W8 may run well for several days, but occasionally hangs for 30' to minutes. Mouse is usable and some window switching is possible, but during the freeze it's essentially dead. Occurs randomly while in browser, other programs, file manager, etc. Sometimes, but not always, a window reports "not responding." If items are clicked during the unresponsive period, they will all execute when the freeze ends.

After normal operation resumes there's no event viewer ERROR, but there is a warning at the time of the incident for storahci system: "Reset to device, DeviceRaidPort0, was issued." There is no RAID array on this box. In device manager no RAID driver is shown anywhere.

System runs in AHCI mode and W8 drive is a SATA. Under "IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers" there were two entries for Standard SATA AHCI controller. Both indicated that the drivers were current.

I downloaded a Marvel 91xx SATA 6g controller, right-clicked one of the above entries and UPDATED. The Marvel driver appeared under the "storage controllers" category in device manager, and one of the two SATI AHCI controller entries vanished. Clicking to upgrade the other SATA AHCI entry stated that no drivers could be found.

W8 continues to hang. Hardware/software is identical to that used by W7 on an alternate SSD drive that never hangs. Before W8 CPV, W7 was running on the same SATA drive without problems. Virtually all freeze remedies seen in forums have been tried. Similar problems are widely reported. Perhaps the next W8 incarnation will incorporate a fix.
